Why would you put head armour in other places other than the head?
Just kiddin ;D

As far as those worried about the "Too cool to bother with you" poses, I wouldn't be surprised if FW soon releases a second set of charging RR's since the already have at-ease and charging platoon sets. Cheers

I think you should go back to the stable for a second look. Or is your stable a particular good stable with very well breed horses. A police horse would look fat next to those FW ones, they are veyy muscular to me.

WW1 cavalry didn't have high-explosive charges on the end of their lances...

Which means absolutely jack to lasgun-fire. Or any fire, for that matter...

Maybe they're knife-resistant?

On the aside, even though they are cool, they aren&#39;t what I&#39;m after, as such methinks I will convert some rohan riders or something when/if I do mine.

I love these new models but i still have a very difficult time accepting HORSES as a viable means of warfare in the 41st millenium. heck... 42nd now. Of course my alternative isnt much better but ww2 circa german motorbikes would be MUCH better in my opinion... smaller in scale and less bulky than a marine bike and no turbo... just counts as rough riders... with a lance sticking out to poke ppl with. poke poke.

cheers

Yeah... I wonder, do they have Rough Riders in Epic?

Because if they do, and they&#39;re actually useful at all, they&#39;re idiots...
